So.... yeah. I'm only posting this photo because it's AFTER the ride, and I'm not dead. I present: the jankiest setup on two wheels.
So.... IV bottle gas tank, no front brake, no tail light, one blinker, and no mirrors. I put all of about 1/4 mile into it, and... here's my breakdown.
-Clutch works. Very nicely actually- dropping from neutral to 1st is more like a click, vs. a KACHUNK.
-On acceleration, everything sounds... normal.
-It goes down the road straight!
-Ride is.... not great. A bit of (real light) bouncing on the front end, which may be forks need rebuilding (they do).
-Lots of sharp popping from.... somewhere. It might be cylinder 1 again, which might be the plug wire.
-Every time I decelerated, the motor died. Not quite exactly sure why yet.
-It starts REALLY hard. Like.... full choke will get it to hit, then die. Letting the choke off helps a bit, but it will eventually die there, too. Granted it was pretty cold out, but to warm it up I pretty much had to hold the throttle slightly open until it was warm enough to settle down on its own.
ANYWAY- this gets me something to work with. Next up- tank cleaning. Gonna try some electrolysis!
